Calabria At a Glance

Region Name Calabria

Calabria is a non-industrial rural mountainous region. Its economy is dependent on cereals, citrus, and particularly olives, with a per-capita income less than half the national average. Called Enotria by the Greeks in pre-Roma times for its illustrious vinous past, today viticulture and winemaking are far from the vital industries they once were and account for a tiny proportion of land use.

  • Score: 90 Vintage 2021 Vinous Media The 2021 Greco is pretty and airy in the glass. Young peach and sweet spring florals form its bouquet. This opens with a burst of confectionary spice and candied citrus, slowly mellowing into ripe nectarine and mint. It tapers off with a tropical flourish, leaving kiwi and lime sorbet nuances to fade slowly. The balance here is beautiful. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 89 Vintage 2021 Wine Enthusiast Delicate flowers and fruit float off the nose of this Greco, from almond flowers to ripe pears to Meyer lemons. The palate highlights lemon-lime citrus and more pears, but then more savory notes emerge, from wet slate to nutty, tahini elements, all punched up with a through line of sharp acid.

  • Score: 88 Vintage 2020 Wine Spectator A fresh and floral white, layering notes of ripe green melon and pear fruit, pickled ginger, Thai basil and peach blossom on the light-bodied frame. Drink now. 2,000 cases made, 200 cases imported.  Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 86 Vintage 2019 Vinous Media The 2019 Greco is pretty with nuances of sweet white flowers, crushed stone and lemon confit. This is a soft and pleasantly ripe effort that balances sweet melon with salty mineral tones. Exotic florals and a hint of mint linger as it tapers off with medium length.
